We decided to start making cauliflower rice, but I decided to "zoosh" my rice with few more ingredients.
1/2 fresh cauliflower cut into florets
3/4 cup of frozen mixed vegetables (used peas, green beans, corn and carrots)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon dry mixed herbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil
1/2 squeezed lemon
Fresh coriander chopped up (optional)
How to get your cauliflower looking like rice:
I used the S-blade of a food processor to make the cauliflower look as fine as couscous.
I have read that you can also use a box grater if you don't have a food processor and grate on the fine setting of the grater.
Put your stove on a medium heat setting.
Add oil to the pan.
Add the cumin seeds, once they start splattering, add the mixed veg.
Give it a good stir and let it cook for 10 minutes
Add the cauliflower, turmeric, salt and herbs
Cover the pan and cook for a further 15 minutes.
Add the lemon juice and coriander just before serving
I find the cauliflower rice gets more fluffy when you cover with a lid when cooking.
Have a taste, if you feel it needs more salt add it on while its hot and give it a good stir
